After a couple of classes I have found myself being taught and experiencing information in this class that I know will help me prepare for my future as a teacher. Some of the topics that we have already covered that I have learned that I think will help me in the future is race, class, culture and how these can fit into a school curriculum. I have learned with these types of topics that myself, as a future teacher, needs to be careful with teaching these in a classroom. I know I need to be careful because not all students may have the same perspective with these topics.
